1960 MG MGA Black/Red Additional Info:

Up for sale is a southern kept original 1960 MGA 1600 roadster. This car was bought in Georgia were it spent almost all of its life tracked back to 1976. From my research this a 1960 model vin#GHNL71326. The 1600 MGA was built between 1960 and 1961 and had a slightly larger engine, front disc brakes and different tail lamps from the original 1500 model. This car is very solid and complete for its age and would be a great candidate to restore or fix as a daily driver. The value of these cars will do nothing but increase as they have been out of production and they are fun to drive. This would be a great father and son project or a winter hobby to restore.The seats are Black with Red piping and have no cracks tears or splits anywhere. This car has the padded center console that also is in great condition. The windshield has no cracks or scrapes and the chrome is frame is gorgeous. All the gauges are complete and original as well as the dash knobs. The car comes with a couple of boxes of spare parts including lenses, wiper arms, hardware, new rear wheel cylinders, clutch slave, hose brake shoes and springs. The lower rocker panels were replaced at some point with home made steel and new rocker panels are included but they are not rusty they are just not correct but look ok. The only rust issue I see is in the trunk. The rubber molding was missing and it was parked with the trunk backed out and water collected in the trunk carpet and so now there are 2 holes inside the trunk towards the back of the car. You can buy the patch panel for 175 bucks from a catalog or make your own and save money. Underneath the rest of the car the battery boxes are solid. The inner fenders have no rust holes. The trunk is the worst place on the car that I can see. The 2 bad points are the 2 holes in the trunk and the home made outer rocker panels that are not original. The car has rare fiberglass period sun visor wind deflectors. I bought the car recently from an individual from Georgia who had cranked the car a few months before I purchased it. I have not attempted to crank the car at all and I do not have time to see if it will crank. The engine is not locked up and turns over fine. From my research I believe it to be the original unit the serial number is #18GAOH11841 which is a high compression engine. My family and I have sold MG and Triumph parts for the last 45 years in downtown Birmingham Alabama. The car is located at our warehouse and you can come look at it anytime from 10-5 on weekdays or ring me and I can meet serious buyers at 205-478-3164. The paint job looks ok in the pictures but they painted over the chrome hood grills and some other things so I would have it repainted.
